This year Holy Family Primary School, in conjunction with St Vincent de Paul Indooroopilly/ St Lucia Conference is once again providing hampers for families in need this Christmas Season.
Each class will be allocated one or two families or individuals for whom they will purchase special Christmas food and non-food items as a Christmas gift. By having Holy Family School involved in the SVDP Christmas appeal, it allows students and the school community to connect on a personal level with SVDP clients in our local area, as well as raise awareness and funds to support the SVDP society’s good works. In addition, SVDP is looking for HF parish support in providing staple food items, which will be included in the weekly food hampers distributed to clients such as the ladies in Brigid House. Some suggestions: pasta sauce, hearty soups, tinned tuna, salmon, ham, tinned veg (corn, beans/ peas) tinned fruit, savoury crackers, sweet biscuits, salad dressing, teabags/coffee, chocolate drink powder and fruit juice. Donated food items can be placed at the base of the Christmas tree at the back of the church.
We thank you in advance for your support for those who wont be as lucky as us this Christmas and during the year.
